Father's Day Gift Guide

The Dads in our lives are among our favourite people.  They are the purveyors of the very best cringe Dad jokes, the people we call first when the car/lawn mower/washing machine is playing silly buggers and the blokes most likely to see the best in us. 

What they are NOT, is easy to buy for.  

We've put together this handy gift guide so finding Dad the ideal gift is easy.  With Spring just around the corner garden tools, outdoor furniture and watering equipment make the perfect gifts for Dad.  We stock excellent quality tools and equipment that will last - sure to get you favourite child status! 

Bonus points for supporting a small business (we literally give a little woop with joy every time someone buys something from our shop!)
